Question Custom xfce based debian 6.0 distro need testers


Okay, I need people willing to download after i finish debugging and installing required packages I need people to help me test this what i consider it a linux distro. It is debian core with XFCE built on it with the gnome login screen and I need someone to test for bugs and required fixes and things that need to be added after i work out the major bugs any takers please email me

christopher111bonnie@gmail.com
I really need it tested so I can see if I can release it, all it truly is, is a Debian 6.0 core with a face lift.

Do you really think that you will find testers for your distro when you state in a different thread that you never will change to anything not Ubuntu?
Shouldn't you be the first one to run your distro 24/7 to look for bugs?

If you are going to attract testers, you need to explain what you're offering that doesn't already exist. If it's based on Debian Stable, how does it differ from SalineOS? If it were based on Testing, what would be the advantages over LMDE? I'm not one of those people who complains that there are too many distros, but if you are creating a new one, then you need a vision of something that isn't currently available. And to get people to use it, let alone test it, you need to communicate that vision.

You could get yourself an account at SourceForge and host your distro build there for people to try.

If you post a link to install instructions or, even better, an install .iso file I'm sure I'll find time to stick it in a VM and give it a whirl.
